Hello, my name is Alisa. I am from Russia. I study at Vaganova Ballet Academy. And now I’m here because It really helps me. First, because I practice my English Language. Second, I really work here. I can understand what I need to do, how I need to do it. I can improve myself more and more. The next year when I will study at my school,
it will help me… …because I will understand in which way I need to work. And I really, really love it. The teachers who are here really help me. And they don’t just help me, They help all students who study here. Natalya is always the same, and she
really wants to take the best from me. She really understands me. I can just speak with her, and try to
understand what she wants to give me. She really loves her students. We are really hard workers here – all of us. I really love this place.
I haven’t got a dream role. The role that I dance right now is my dream role. If I will dance another role it will be my dream role. I just like to dance. Now I have three roles. The first is Lilac Fairy. She is queen of all the fairies. She is really smart, and I really like this part. Second, I dance Fairy of Beauty. I really like this part too, because
the movements are really beautiful, And the music is beautiful, too. Third part is Aurora, Sleeping Beauty. The whole ballet is about this person. I like it because it is not really hard to understand, because she is a young girl who is 16 years old. She just likes to dance. She really loves her life. And I like dancing this part, too. The best part is when I start rehearsing some part,
and I start to understand what is my role,
What I need to take from myself and give to this part. When I just dance for myself I really love it because… I can feel the music and I can’t think about something. I just feel the music and dance,
and this is the part I most love. I really love this place. This is like my home. Because I am here for the fourth year, Last year I wan’t here, and I was really
upset because I really miss this place. I really love the teachers. I really love all the students. When our summer intensive is finished
we are all like a big family. I really like it. I just really thank you for teachers
and for this place – it really helps me. Feeling…that I have here. I feel like I’m at home.
